Create an itinerary including Overland Park 9/11 Memorial
The memorial project at the Fire Training Center in Overland Park, KS will be one of the largest 9/11 memorial projects in the nation.

It is one of the most intricately-designed and publicly-accessible and only educational memorial.

The memorial includes a 14 foot, 5,600 pound steel beam from the World Trade Center. The beam has a hole near the upright tip that will cast a shadow on four panels marking each of the four planes that crashed on Sept. 11, 2001. At the exact time each plane hit, the shadow will be marked on the panels to forever remember those moments in history.

  • Small memorial, but definitely significant. Beautiful landscape and quiet area to memorialize such a pivotal point in time. Worth a stop if you are nearby.

  • My wife and I were in New York City in September and visited the 9/11 memorial. When we stopped at the one here in Overland Park, a lot of the same emotions came over us. It is very touching and they did a wonderful job creating it and making a place for those that lost their lives can be remembered.
  • Brings back a lot of memories. A day I'll never forget.
